Genius work from a little-known group – but a great one too! New World Generation were an early 80s combo from the Boston scene – but they've got a groove that's very much in keeping with some of the most righteous funk acts of the late 70s – particularly those that brought a nice degree of spiritualism to their music, like James Mason or RAMP! This sweet little set carries some great echoes of that generation – a warmer, jazzier style that most other early 80s soul music you'd hear from elsewhere – and a richly-conceived vision that has New World Generation sounding way different than your usual funk, club, or boogie act of the time. Plus, the package is really fleshed out with additional sounds from related groups Universal Rhythms and Orision – tracks that, like the New World Generation numbers, weren't really issued at the time – but which represent a very hip side to underground soul in the US – one that's often eclipsed by bigger acts going for easy chart fame. Now Again have really outdone themselves with the package – bringing together rare tracks from almost-gone tape sources, and putting together a set of notes that really helps illuminate this amazing batch of music! Titles include "Sunshine", "Curious Soul", "Dreamland", "One Of A Kind", "I'm Feelin' Fine", "Mystical Planet", "New World Generation", "Worry", "Free Your Mind", "How Do You Feel", "Listen From Your Soul", "Loving You", and "Someday The World Will Be As One".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Leonor
GDM (Italy), 1975. New Copy
